TB Lobby, Slovakia

The original design of the entrance lobby of Tatra banka, which carried some characteristics of the last decade of the 20th century, no longer conformed to the requirements for a good flow of employees. Therefore the assignment said to simplify, streamline and modernize the space in a way that will also represent the progress in the brand identity itself.

Initially, after in-depth analysis, we decided to open up the space by removing all of the original partitions. Although this solution brightened up the lobby, the layout seemed a little incoherent and in need of some unifying principle. This principle should bring tranquility to the chaotic space as well as a strong aesthetic and representative effect.

Based on the limits and requirements we placed an imaginary cylinder in the center of the layout to anchor the space of reception and bring a sense of unity and softness to the space. This element is emphasized by a copper ring inserted into the cast floor and its counterpole cutout in the ceiling. A partially perforated ceiling enables the distribution of fresh air from the air-conditioning system. An interesting component of the suspended ceiling panels consists of wooden prisms representing a simplified logo of the bank. The cylindrical central space is enhanced by the curved design of the reception desk.

The theme of cylinders is repeated in dividing mesh partitions, which see soft and ethereal. Placing them intentionally in the space created visual layers and functional zones. Another unifying principle we used in the space was monochromatic beige wall plaster, in different finishes, bringing a sense of Zen atmosphere and natural quality. Curvy furniture (Arper/Cila) nicely communicates with the overall design idea. Interior plants play an important role as a part of the interior. All principals, materials, and textures come together to create a calming oasis.
